Our Mission

The Carbon Utilization Research Council (CURC) is an industry coalition focused on technology solutions for the responsible use of our fossil energy resources. The strength of our coalition derives from the breadth of our membership, which includes power generators that rely upon diverse sources for their electricity production — including natural gas and coal — equipment manufacturers, technology innovators, national associations that represent the power generating industry, labor unions, fossil fuel producers, non-governmental entities, and state, university and technology research organizations.
